Las Vegas, NV – Gary Haas, owner of Haas Photography of Beaver Dam, WI, along with his son, Adam Haas, recently returned from a speaking engagement at a 3-day Marketing Boot Camp for Professional Photographers in Las Vegas, NV. Gary was one of several featured experts to educate the international audience on the latest technological advances going on in the photography industry.

Gary and Adam have been researching, studying and attending workshops & seminars over the last 14 months to pull together all of the technologies necessary to master on-line marketing. As part of that process they have assembled a team of experts capable of taking complex search-engine technologies and making them work together seamlessly and easily for the average user. The result is a system that helps studio owners supercharge their on-line marketing. Currently, the system is being made available to a core group of charter member studios for further research and development. After that, the program will be rolled out nationally. Studios will have exclusive rights to their own local market area.
Gary states, “A few years ago we realized that we had to upgrade our own website so visitors could find us on-line more easily and would have a better experience on our website once they got there. We were extremely frustrated by the tools available and the hassle of making changes to our site in a timely manner. Everyone we talked to complained about web developers, and how they never got any traffic to their site, and how they never got any business from it, and that it was a big waste of money.  The rapid growth in social media like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and others added another whole challenge, too. About that same time, our son, Adam, joined the studio making it a 3rd generation family business. His interest and abilities added the additional spark we needed. Together, we decided that we would dig in our heels and tackle this huge endeavor.”
“Shortly after that, during one of our monthly entrepreneurial meetings, we met the key people we needed to pull everything together. We soon realized that it would not be practical for any of us to develop this concept for just one studio. That’s when we decided to systemize it and make it available to other studios. It’s been an amazing journey involving hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars to get to this point. That’s why it was so encouraging to get more than double the response we anticipated after our presentation in Las Vegas. Obviously there’s a big need for this in the marketplace.”
Haas Photography was started by Gary’s parents, Penny and Duane Haas back in the 1950’s. Throughout the years the Haas family has received numerous awards for photographic excellence and service to the professional photography industry. Penny & Duane are in their mid-nineties now and are constantly amazed at the changes they’ve seen over the years, from B&W photographs with hand oil coloring, to natural color, to digital and now the internet.
